Forum: feature_films Subject: Is it just me

Does anybody mange to stream anything from this site
On the times I've tried to stream something it never gets past the first few seconds. After that, well it's not practicle to continue.
File downloads, A couple of years ago sometimes, and only sometimes I could get a fairly decent speed on a file download, now I can't really download anything because every thing is so slow. Even this forum and the site in general moves at a snails pace.
I would be happy to pay a fee or subscription to use the site. But as it stands at the moment it no use whats so ever.
I'm in the UK, maybe thats the problem.

Of your download speed, try different times of day when there is less traffic on IA. This site has grown in popularity and seems to be near its capacity. I get decent speeds, but I'm in Seattle and I usually download after hours.

As far as subscribing, IA is a non-profit and takes donations:

Anything would help them in meeting these demands.

I suggest you take a look at Flashget.com. You may find some help there.

I think the reason the IA is running so slow is because it is under attack from idiots who have taken over the "Open Source Movies" area to post proaganda for their websites.

Why else would the IA traffic suddenly increase so quickly?
This site isn't that well known.

Read the previous post about terrorists wrecking the Archive.
